Ipswich Housing Action Group (ihAg)

More than just a homeless charity

When basic needs, such as warmth, food, belongings, company and a place to call home are at risk, we can help. Whether it’s money advice, supported housing for single people, signposting to other support organisations or a simple hello, we are there.

We believe in action. Action against the causes of homelessness. Supporting individuals to take action to help themselves. Action to prevent people losing their homes.

We’ve been taking action since 1976. Our action helps over 3,000 people a year across Ipswich.

"When life got really difficult, I just wanted to sail away from it. It was hard to ask for help. I’m glad I did.”

We believe every person should have access to a safe home to call their own, and should receive the right support for them, at the right time, to enable them to maintain their home and achieve a level of independency that is right for them.

Redundancy work items in a box

With so many redundancies at the moment, life can be tough for a lot of households.

Our Money Advisers are ready to take your call, listen and support you through the worst of times.

The global pandemic may restrict our ability to meet in groups but it won't stop us supporting people affected by financial hardship. The Chapman Centre and our outreach team are still actively offering help.

Sadly, single people facing a life without a permanent home are increasingly finding it hard to access council housing.

Our 14 houses provide the council with much needed living space to meet this need.

Sometimes life can be difficult. Bereavement, redundancy, divorce, addiction, debt are just a few of the challenges people face. When difficulty comes, do you have a support network to help you through?

At ihAg, we are part of the support. To continue our life changing work beyond helping the homeless, we need your support. Donating time, money or goods can make all the difference to the support we offer.
